  1. I have inherited a Carrom board and would like to know if it has any value at all. It was bought in 1998 by the look of a mark on the rear from Karums who do not appear to exist anymore. I have photographs of the top and underside

    1. In the 1990’s I also bought a very good board and still use an excellent striker from a company called Karum. As far as I know, the boards were made at a UK farm outside London and sold at the Covent Garden open market. The company no longer trades and I could not trace them myself.
      The board I bought conforms to the International Carrom Federation and is of competition quality. Check for 29″x29″ internal playing area of birch plywood with 2″ deep plywood layers and 3″ wide hardwood frame. Plywood is so deep that no traditional back supports are needed to ensure it stays flat. Playing surface should be very smooth, as it is not worth replacing it. High quality carrom boards are worth £150-£450.
